I've been studying sexual energy a lot lately as I think it has a huge effect on drive, ambition, creativity, etc. What I'm wondering is whether foregoing orgasm for a long period of time (say a month or more) will boost or dampen sexual energy. I know that when I forego orgasm for say, a week after my last orgasm I generally feel a good energy. However, I am now almost 3 weeks from my last orgasm and my sexual energy feels as if it is dropping. This is concerning to me as I like a feeling a good, solid state of high sexual energy.
When Marina writes about dopamine levels stabilizing after two weeks with no orgasm is that another way to say sexual energy stabilizes (or lessens?). If so, is it possible that that is actually a bad thing for those of us who credit high sexual energy with our productivity, drive, etc.?
I haven't seen anything written about this and I think it's a fascinating topic. Would love to hear what others think.
